What does RSVP mean?


Answer by  malone (4817)

RSVP stands for "respondez, s'il vous plait," which if French for "please respond. " When RSVP is included on an invitation, the sender wants to hear if you plan to attend OR if you must decline. It is polite to respond either way so the hostess can plan accordingly.

It is short for the French phrase "Répondez s'il vous plaît". This translates to reply if you please. People put that on their invitations when they want to know exactly how many people are going to attend. You are supposed to let the person who invited you know if you are attending or not.
